The End of Foolish Heart into drums is the best I had heard for 20 years.

Listen Close

I was there and I thought it was one of the weakest shows on the tour,but I have found this recording to be interesting and doesn't seem as bad as I thought.If this show had been in '95 it would have been one of the best of the year !!!I agree with previous reviewer that post space is the best part.IMO Let it Grow was mellow but good,and it is always nice to hear Roses....

Subject: accordian?
im not sure how these guys could have allowed hornsby to play accordian on cold rain & snow and masterpiece. he could have really added some great piano to both tunes. other than that theres some good playing. hornsby adds some great keys on let it grow. the other two nights are better especially for the rubin and cherise on 4/7

Subject: Such Disappointment
I just had a blast the whole time, even if the music sucked. I had never seen so many vendors lined up and down the street at a show. The second day all of these cops came with horesemounted officers, DEA helicopters, and undercover agents. Yes, the shows were weak, some poor deadhead drowned in the nearby lake and they closed with another Throwin'>NotFade. Plus, I was not going to sit through another Brokedown encore. Sound familiar? What a waste of time for the band and the fans.

Mickey Mouse and Space Mountain got better reviews at this run.

This was a first for me in terms of not remembering a string of shows. I must've had a really good time. Thank You Archive.org

Subject: Three Star show
This is one of those nights that the band just wasn't all that ON. Although it's definetley listenable, the beginning of the show is plagued by sound issues that hold the band back for almost the whole first set. And it seems that they just never really were able to fire on all cylinders. It was, after all the last night of the Spring tour, and I think they booked one night too many. Overall, a 3 star show in my opinion.

The 19+ minute Foolish into space is pretty nice though. Post space is actually very well played in comparison to the first set and the first half of set 2, although very typical in terms of song choice for the era, and a little lacking in typical '91 energy. 3+ overall.

Subject: Sounds ok...
After reading the previous review I was sort of glad I had sold my ticket after attending the previous two nights...I remember the music being good but not overly impressing or inspiring(the first two nights). I was sort of predisposed though...I was dumped by a serious girlfriend three days before these shows...she had been cheatin' on me and I knew the guy...the worst was we mail ordered our tickets together and she didn't really expect me to want to go when she dropped the bomb...I took my tix anyways...was bummed the whole time. Funny thing is she came running back to me about 6 months later...it was never the same...I really did love her for a while...and I'm grateful to have had the experience with her but something just burned out when she decided to cheat on me...we had a couple of reunions and last I spoke to her I was married and she was crying about it...what can a poor boy do? Oh well...speaking of this show...this run was my first run after Brent passed...I never really enjoyed the music after Atlanta 1990...seems like something left the Dead's music when Brent died...I dunno...I'm not gonna knock Vince...it's just that Brent seemed to glue everything together or something. Heck...maybe I just changed...I still love the dead...God Bless the Grateful Dead!

Subject: Disappointing...
This was a letdown of a show for me. I was maybe expecting too much, but it was basically a summation of the whole tour instead of a distinct performance.

Bobby was doin' his Jr. Sound Detective act during Hell in a Bucket...opening drawers lookin' for stuff in his rack...leavin' stage and walkin' back out with a roadie...tweakin' knobs...HEY BOB, THERE'S A SHOW GOIN' ON...HOW 'BOUT GETTIN' INVOLVED? Unfortunately, the rest of the band seemed as interested in being there as he was...
